"He was driving too fast and I saw the tree lift off and it flew straight at me. The trunk made a great dent in my bonnet and caused me to run off the road and into a hedge." Mr Fairclough added: "The chap didn't stop and he never came back for his tree. The Police said we might as well have it. It wasn't funny at the time but looking back it was like a comedy sketch!"

5 things to know about insurance and the holiday season

Santa and insurance
1. Property is at its most vulnerable over the holidays. Make sure you double-check your security, potential fire causes and storm protection before any planned closures. 2.

Make sure your sums insured are up to date though, as we hate seeing claims not being fully paid due to underinsurance. 3. Don’t forget your virtual property too. Regularly ensure your website and other IT systems are up and running and free from any cyber threats, especially if you make sales online.
